De Jong is a top target for Barca this summer.
And Xavi says: "I have not seen him play a lot, but he does look like Sergio Busquets in terms of playing style.
"He is seen as a beastly talent. He is really a player to keep an eye on, a very good player."
Xavi, now in charge of Al Sadd, added: "Arthur, Rabiot and De Jong are the type of players that Barcelona needs. They are players who are technically very gifted, work hard for the team and have a lot of talent. Because that's what Barcelona is all about."
